I have a Canon SD700is. I am right now using a 1 gig sandisk. If I use an UltraII high speed card, will the IS feature work better?

Huh? The type of memory card won't have anything to do with how well Image Stabilization works.

Card speed should not impact image quality in any way (unless you get a defective card that corrupts them, and you'd have pretty obvious problem if that happened).

The speed of the memory card has no impact on image quality on any camera. Even for the very nice movie mode of the Canon SD700is virtually any card on the market is sufficient. Only in burst mode, when you shoot a long series of high resolution pictures, the speed of the memory card matters and prevents the camera from slowing down, when its interal buffer is full.
